Uncertainty hits bookings from Germany and the UK

The political and economic uncertainty is having a growing impact on tourism in Greece, with bookings from Germany and Britain showing worrying signs in March.

Data from the Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises (SETE) showed on Tuesday that there were 25.8 percent fewer bookings from Germany last month than in March 2014, while in September there had been an annual rise of 82.1 percent.

A significant drop in Greece’s share from the British market has also been recorded, according to estimates by SETE, as rival destinations have capitalized on Greek uncertainty.
